It’s taken me a long time and the reason is, I’ll be honest, is because it’s been ridiculously cold and so I flew away to Costa Rica for a month to escape the English weather. I then realised, nobody wants weekly posts of me in one of the two bikinis I took with me. Now spring has started peek it’s head through the showers, it’s time for some blog updating! I promise there will be weekly posts and I will no longer neglect this page!
I just recently inherited this dress from a close family friend as she was clearing out the loft...my, my, my was I a happy girlie when I received not one...but SIX bin bags full of clothes! Thanks Julianne x
Today was friggin' COLD. Definitely not enough items of clothing layered over and around my body. Bought this denim sleeveless jacket in Copenhagen at the same store I bought the flannel shirt/dress! Such a nice shop. Got a big delivery from Romwe the other day, this jumper being my favourite!

This is 100% my favourite new purchase. It was one of those days when my brain did not want to go through the torture of TK Maxx searching and so I nearly drove past but my heart made me stop in for five minutes. I went straight to 'Modbox' (the section where I buy pretty much all of my clothes) and spotted this tartan beauty. I tried it on and yeah, you can see my bum cheeks but whatever, it's wonderful!

Did anyone see the Jezebel.com story exposing fashion photographer Terry Richardson? What a pervert! If you scroll down, I've included just one of the quotes but it's kind of gross. It mimics what's been going on in the British press where disgusting men with a tiny bit of power seem to be exploiting young girls. He does take good photo's though. Oh no, wait, he just gets celebrities to stand against a white wall and puts a flash on. Well done Terry!
"I was a model in the late 90s in London, and I was booked on a Terry Richardson job for Arena Homme Plus. The shoot was at an amusement park, and I would estimate that there were 30 models in total [...] and we were told that all of us would be given an opportunity to shoot a cover try. Being familiar with Mr. Richardson's.....peccadillos, many of the models were eager to please; pleasing in this instance consisted primarily of pulling down pants, pulling up skirts, losing blouses, and a bit of finger sucking thrown in for good measure. It seemed painfully clear to me that the phantom lure of a cover try was sufficient reason for a handful of young women with waning career prospects to humiliate themselves in front of each other while Terry Richardson giggled, panted, said "That's hot," and pushed them further. During lunch, I approached him and asked him if he had any moral quandaries about exploiting the sad dreams of models who hadn't yet made it and probably never would. I asked him if he realized that they were enacting what they believed were his expectations and fantasies in order to gain his favor and hence gain a cover or a future booking. "I don't really think about that stuff," he told me. "I guess you're smarter than me."

Hello boys and girls! So I feel the winter is coming now and it's probably drawing closer to the last time I can have my legs on show without thick, thick tights. I recently came back from Copenhagen where I spent about two hours in one thrift store trying on copious amounts of clothes with my lovely Swedish amigos. This flannel shirt/dress was one of my purchases.

The summer has come to a close and the leaves are falling off the trees. It's not easy to get out of bed and therefore staying in posting well overdue photos is way more appealing than going on adventures outside! Tomorrow I'm going for a morning walk through the woods, I love the autumn in London. For now though, i'm off to watch Dexter!
